Volvo Cars recalls 8,500 green cars


Green-Cars-2009-Volvo-S40-010Ford-owned Volvo Cars on Thursday said it is recalling around 8,500 green cars, mainly in Sweden, due to problems with the fuel-pump.
Company spokesman Stefan Elfstrom in Goteborg said the recall concerns the Volvo V70 and Volvo S80
models of 2008 and 2009.

“The reason for the recall is a robustness issue with the fuel-pump which under high temperatures may cause stalling of the vehicle,” said Elfstrom.

Ninety-five percent of the cars, which are equipped with half-gallon (two-liter) flexi-fuel engines, have been sold in Sweden. Elfstrom said the remainder had been sold in 15 other European countries, including Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland.
